UWM is a wonderful school! Being in the city allows you to be introduced to many new types of people and activities. Plus, it allows you to create connunitions with the workforce and community of the city. There are so many clubs on campus that everyone will be able to find a place they belong, as well as a great amount of diversity and support/resources for those students. The school also offers tons of majors so a student can fully explore their interests, and support to help them thrive (such as free tutoring, free health clinic, free gym, peer mentors, the different resource centers, etc). A wonderful school for anyone looking to have both a great social and academic life in college!

Great campus with wonderful facilities and opportunities. The tutoring is phenomenal and always easy to find someone to help answer questions. Class sizes are perfect. Unfortunately, they nickle and dime you for everything! There is always the question of will I be able to pay off my student loans after I graduate? Will I get a good job because of the degree I've earned? I've made a lot of friends here and I enjoy the intramural sports. There's always something going on and something to do. They take safety seriously.
This school is absolutely wonderful! There is a lot to offer to students and so much to do. Students are given so many resources and opprotunities to help them be successful. Professors are amazing and always willing to help students in any way possible. The school in general is very helpful and supportive of students. Plus the school is in a wonderful location. Milwaukee has so much to offer all over, and there are so much to do, so many place to go and explore. There is a great sense of community here and it is a welcoming enviornment.
